263. Peace Be To This Habitation

1 Peace be to this habitation,
Peace to all who dwell therein,
Peace, the earnest of salvation
Peace, the fruit of pardoned sin.

2 Peace that speaks its heav'nly Giver,
Peace to worldly minds unknown,
Peace divine, that lasts forever,
Peace that comes from God alone.

3 Jesus, Prince of peace, be near us,
Fix in all our hearts Thy home:
With Thy gracious presence cheer us,
Let Thy sacred kingdom come.

4 Raise to heav'n our expectation,
Give our favored souls to prove
Glorious and complete salvation,
In the realms of bliss above.
